While I don't agree with everything you wrote, I do agree that the President did a hatchet job on the oil industry and we're still paying for it at the pump. Just this week I read where the Chinese National oil company bought the Gulf of Mexico assets of Nexen.

Ooooo, scary conspiracy theories from Weigle. What a surprise.

If the President is so against the oil industry, why is domestic oil production at an all time high?

Hayes- drilling on private lands in the Dakotas. Don't tell me that Obama actually is for fossil fuels- look what he's doing to coal fired generators. Too bad you have selective memory loss. I remember how Obama took the hands off approach- he's as guilty as BP. Liberals......

"9/11 was an inside job."

"Bush and Cheney intentionally lied about the WMD intel to get us to invade Iraq."

"President Obama isn't a US citizen and cannot be President"

"The conspirator in me asks,"was it really an accident?""

Meanwhile, tinfoil hat sales continue to be steady, unaffected by the economic slowdown.

Perhaps the most telling side to the 'Gulf Oil Spill' farce was this: Where was the massive damage that would take generations to clean up before the Gulf area would again be a desirable commercial and tourist location? It appears that the situation was overblown and exaggerated or BP is the absolute best at cleaning up a mess that threatens an area's well being for generations, reducng it to months instead of possibly hundreds of years. Given the extremely short time until the Gulf returned to normal, or near normal, I figure it was exaggerated and overblown.

Mr. Weigle, you are off base on this one. I don't believe anyone would do this on purpose. It was a combination of unrelated equipment and human failures along with a prolific oil producing formation that was allowed to get out of control.

I do believe that the administration is taking advantage of a catastrophic event by one company to punish an entire industry and push their environmental agenda that all Americans will pay for.

If the truth were to be known, the moratorium on drilling in the Gulf has caused far more damage than the blow out ever did! Because the moratorium killed the energy based economy of at least a portion of four states with shutting down drilling in the Gulf, I brought my family to central PA. I could have stayed in Louisiana and drawn unemployment like the President would have liked, but we came here because the Northeast was desperate for anyone with any oilfield experience.

President Obama's inspectors, who are tasked with ensuring blow-outs do not happen, were at their desks watching **** on their computers....at taxpayer expense.

Nobody was fired.

eriklatranyi - "President Obama's inspectors, who are tasked with ensuring blow-outs do not happen, were at their desks watching **** on their computers....at taxpayer expense.

Nobody was fired." Funny thing is, the same thing happened at the SEC during the Wall Street collapse. Maybe we should just ban computers!

My God, I just can't believe someone wrote this letter. I bet if there was oil spilled in your yard you would be screaming bloody murder and want revenge and compensation. Your tax dollars paid to clean up the gulf, now let us get our money back from the people who caused this. Watching p**n on there computers, where do you come up with this stuff anyway.

You forgot that secret muslim, President Obama "ordered the attack" on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Gavin. That's a good one. Or maybe that he wants to "confiscate all guns in America" so he can march Republicans off to extermination camps. Or even the new classic, that President Obama ordered the Newtown school massacre.

Sorry Gavin, but if this is how the Republican party wants to rebuild itself, I'm all for it. By 2016, at the present rate, we should be hearing that Hillary Clinton is a secret space alien, sent by the plant Zork to destroy the Earth.

Stock up on popcorn, it should be quite a show.

The President is currently involved with a hatchet job on the firearm industry just like the hatchet job he did on the oil industry. He sits and waits for his opportunity and then pounces with all of his force to finally get his way. We're giving him all the ammunition he needs. This is the way that this administration has operated from day one. One crisis opportunity at a time. Healthcare, energy exploration, openly gay people in the military, gay marriage, federal spending out of control, budget crisis after budget crisis .....the list of things crisis go on and on ......all manufactured to force the issue to get what the president wants!

Again, domestic oil production is at an all time high. Considering that oil drilling needs to be federally permitted, please explain how it could be that the president is simultaneously against domestic oil production, yet it's at an all time high?

I think Mattel should hurray up and come out with the new conspiracy theory Barbie, complete with accessories, like a tin foil beret, and fake birth certificate.

Permits to drill are down, but production is up because of improvements in peoduction techniques like fracing and artificial lift systems for oil production.

It's kind of funny that hardly any one addressed the body of the letter, just what I feel was the satirical ending. Did Obama turn down help from other countries? Did he turn down the idea of bringing other assets in? When the Gov. of Louisiana wanted to put berms of sand off the shoreline, didn't Obama's EPA take it's time and finally turn down the request? Of course, when we worship the messiah, his decisions are always correct. Hayes I'll need accurate research on this- and no biases.

can't you guys read?! Oil production is up because of drilling on private land in the Dakotas, not because of anything Obama has done. He loves the environmentalists and hates fossil fuels. What part don't you understand. Remember skyrocketing electric bills and "if you try to build a coal fired generator I will bankrupt you"? And my tax dollars didn't clean up the Gulf, BP and good old Mother Nature disposed of the oil in the water. You can't beat up Mother Earth, she will win every time, even with nukes. You libs are pathetic!!!!

"Oil production is up because of drilling on private land in the Dakotas,"

What does it matter if Bakken oil is being drilled on private land? The drillers STILL need permits from the Feds to drill.
